Transnational highly available Smart Factories in the Cloud
Unexpected machine or production tool failure affects the production process and product quality, and results in unplanned expenses for companies. Such production stoppages can negatively affect the competitiveness of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in particular.
This is where the HALFBACK project comes in to support SMEs in the production process and reduce machine down time. During the project a software prototype will be developed which will predict and optimize the maintenance planning of the production line using sensor data from the machine. At the same time options for moving production to another factory will be shown so that production does not have to be stopped. An intelligent "machine broker" will make the transnational coordination of companies and machines possible.
